Adirondack chairs are a staple of a relaxed lakeside lifestyle and comfortable outdoor living. The original Adirondack design consisted of eleven flat wooden boards with a simple straight back and seat. The armrests are wide and the design boasts a classic simplicity. Over time the design of the Adirondack chair has evolved to feature a rounded back and a contoured seat. These updates have helped the Adirondack chair grow in popularity.
Because the basic design is fairly simple you can easily build your own Adirondack chair in just a few steps. Penofin, a product that Schutte Lumber endorses, has released a set of directions that detail how to build a redwood Adirondack chair. These directions will teach you proper woodworking techniques and will walk you through each step of the construction project. The use of redwood in your Adirondack chair is important because this variety of wood is naturally resistant to insects and decay.
